Tip Reasoning

  • Reading have conceded in their last eight games and conceded first in all of their last seven games.
  • The visitors are unbeaten in their last three against Reading and have won their last four matches.

Six-pointer at the bottom

Reading were in danger of hitting a slump but managed to avoid a trio of defeats as they came from behind to win a 3-2 thriller against Swansea City last time out. It was a victory that seriously helps their survival prospects as they now sit four points above the dropzone, despite a points deduction. If they can pick up a win here it would see them leapfrog their opponents. In order to do so, they’ll need to snap another unwanted streak as The Royals are currently winless in their last four home league matches.

It’s been a remarkable turnaround for Hull City. They looked a sure thing for relegation after 16 rounds of games, in which they lost 11 of those, but they have fought back and put four back-to-back wins together ahead of this match. They now sit five points clear off the dropzone and can thank their defence for their resurgence, conceding just once in their last 381 minutes of play.

Defence will be paramount

More often than not, the teams with the best defences tend to come out on top. Hull City have been watertight at the back and can build off that foundation against a Reading team who have a bad habit of conceding, in particular, the first goal of the game and that could be costly. We think if any of these two sides is going to win, it will be Hull City and so the visitors draw no bet is the angle we like most.
